Creamy Chickpeas, Kale and Andouille Sausage Soup

A good recipe for soup always starts with the right ingredients. Soup is one of the easiest meal anyone can make. These days there are so many condiments that all you need to do is add your ingredients, seasoning, and liquid and let the mixture boil. Within a few minutes, you end up with a full meal.

Quick meals are a favorite of everyone. Our culinary arsenal will transform your favorite recipes. We are not kidding at Caribbean Green Living.

My Condiments will revolutionalize the way you cook. Do you have a jar in your pantry or your refrigerator? 

A teaspoon of, for example, Hot and Spicy Mango with Herbs Blend added to Chickpeas, Kale and Andouille Sausage Soup is the perfect combination. The thick, rich flavor of the spices and the hot peppers are never overpowering. The "zing" taste as we call it in our kitchen gives the soup an extraordinary and delicious flavor.

As a must condiment in your pantry, Hot and Spicy Mango with Herbs Blend may have a fruity taste, but it packs tons of flavor. It is not necessary to add the hot sauce only to meat, poultry or seafood; soup counts as well.

An easy trick to incorporate the hot sauce into your cooking routine is to cook it with the ingredients. Whether you are pan frying your vegetables first, the hot sauce acts as a seasoning. You can also add it to the last few cooking minutes to elevate the taste of all the ingredients. Don't worry if you have to add the hot sauce to your bowl only. Your dinner companions will envy you.

How to make Chickpeas, Kale and Andouille Sausage Soup

First, the chickpeas are slow cooked in a crockpot with enduie (a Haitian spicy and cured meat), shallots and garlic. After the andouille and kale are cooked, half of the beans mixture is added to the pot. The other half of the beans mixture is pureed. The beans puree will create a smooth and appetizing soup.

This recipe is for a hearty soup, made with andouille sausage, cooked chickpeas, and chopped kale, along with flavors of the Caribbean.

This soup makes a delicious meal with toasted or warm bread.
